Abstract

GIT is a distributed revision control and source code management system. It was initially designed for Linux kernel development and is particularly adapted to multi-site and multi-developer environments. In the morning, the basic knowledge of source code management are taught, presenting most GIT functionalities with many illustrations. A brief comparison with other management tools (Mercurial,CVS,SVN) is also proposed. In the afternoon, a hands-­on session with detailed exercices is organized to illustrate the main concepts.

Objective of the training

The objectives of this course are to help the participants learn how to use GIT in order to manage the development of a multi-site and multi-developer code.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, you will be able to :

  • to use the essentials of GIT for all your source code developments;
  • choose the best strategy concerning the creation of different branches;
  • solve the conflicts during the “commit phases”;
  • work in small teams or big teams with GIT.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who wish to manage the development of their codes.

Prerequisites

In order to follow this course, you need to:

  • be familiar with the use of basic Linux commands

To verify that the prerequisite is satisfied, the following questionnaire must be completed. You need to get at least 75% of correct answers in order to be authorized to follow this training session. If you don’t succeed it, your subscription will not be validated. You only have two chances to complete it.

A fiery wakeup call for climate science

superadmin |  26 February 2020

The extent of the recent wildfires in Australia significantly exceeded the projections of any member of the multi-model CMIP archive.  This highlights how current multi-model ensembles may be under-representing the risks of natural disasters under climate change.  Limited coupled system process representation in most models coupled with a lack of parameter uncertainty exploration means that some risks are not explored by the existing international multi-model framework.  This calls for a reassessment of how to focus climate model development on providing robust risk quantification for those impacts which most directly affect society.
